Milton art show displays some great student work

The Milton district-wide art show begins tomorrow and the Daily Item got a sneak peek today at the set-up.

There’s tons of different art pieces and mediums represented at the show, which features work from kindergarteners all the way up to some very talented high school students. Some of this art is so good, I would pay for it if it was sold in stores.

The show is free and open to the public. Read more at dailyitem.com.

Here’s some of my top picks:

Bonus Photos: Milton wrestlers

Sunday, Milton High School honored its two wrestlers who competed at Hershey in the state tournament.

Ryan Solomon placed first and Ryan Preisch placed third.

The pair rode into the high school on a fire truck, then a small ceremony was held in the school’s auditorium to honor their accomplishment.

Here’s some extra photos:

Bonus photo: Chinese exchange students welcomed to Milton HS

 

 

Milton High School has really rolled out the welcome mat for a group of 10 exchange students and a teacher from China.

I got to meet them Wednesday, and it was really a lot of fun hearing first-hand about the differences between the Chinese education system and the U.S. one:

  • At Heibei Middle School, the average class size is about 60 students, the teacher said.
  • There’s no school dances in China. They have evening activities, but they all have an academic/cultural aspect to them, like art, music lessons or calligraphy.
  • Chinese students go to school year-round

And for anyone who didn’t know that Milton was hosting the students, the high school literally had a sign posted outside:
